Mercenaries

The wolf huffed,
his breath a white cloud.
Frustration.

 
The crow preened,
eyeing him sideways
from a tree.

 
“Friend Lupine,”
the corvid began,
“here we are.

 
Centuries
we have followed man;
we know him.

 
We have helped
the two legged hunters
find their prey.

 
We have shared
the task of clean up
after war.

 
They do not
appreciate us.
Not one bit.

 
They shoot us
and drive us away
from their towns.

 
Yet, we are.
We’re mercenaries
together.

 
When man falls
from his own hubris
we remain…

 
And one day,
we will clean their bones
shiny white.

 
You will run
and friend, I will fly,
free and safe.

 
Until then,
find us a trash can
to knock down.

 
Let us eat
while we are dreaming
of heaven.”

 
The wolf grinned
and canted his head.
“Yes. Let’s eat.”
